The Apostle Peter: His Life and Letters

Portada
Sunday School Union, 1873 - 178 pàgines
Drawing on historical documents, the gospels, the Book of Acts and Peter's letters, this book presents a complete biography of the Apostle Peter. Renamed from Simon to Peter, or "the rock," by Jesus, Peter is a zealous, sometimes impetuous New Testament character who, according to tradition, became the first bishop of the Christians in Rome. Author Samuel Green examines the documentary evidence of Peter's career as a missionary and church leader. He also examines traditions regarding Peter's later activities unrecorded in the New Testament. Though Green, a Protestant, doubts some elements of Catholic tradition, this book remains a fascinating portrait of one of Jesus' closest disciples.
